1990 Benetton B190 Piquet

B190 was raced by Benetton Formula in the 1990 season. The car replaced its predecessor B189 after first two races of the season. Works drivers Nelson Piquet and Alessandro Nannini  had competed against Ferrari with Prost and Mansell and McLaren with Senna and Berger. Nannini achieved 3 podium finishes in B190 (2nd in Germany and 3rd in San Marino and Spain), but serious forearm injury in helicopter crash near Siena put the unexpected end to his F1 promising career. Three-time World Champion Nelson Piquet was able to score point almost in every race of the season. After two podium finishes in the mid of the season (in Canada and Hungary), Piquet sensationally won two last races of the season – Japanese and Australian Grand Prix.  His 18 points from the last two races saw him move from 7th in the standings to finishing 3rd in the championship with 43 points.
